We praise, we worship thee, O God,
Thy sovereign power we sound abroad;
All nations bow before thy throne,
And thee the eternal Father own,
Loud alleluias to thy name
Angels and seraphim proclaim;
The heavens and all the powers on high
With rapture constantly do cry:
'O holy, holy, holy Lord,
Thou God of hosts, by all adored,
Earth and the heavens are full of thee,
Thy light, thy power, thy majesty.'
Apostles join the glorious throng,
And swell the loud immortal song;
Prophets enraptuered hear the sound,
And spread the alleluia round.
Victorious martyrs join their lays,
And shout the omnipotence of grace;
While all thy church through all the earth
Acknowledge and extol thy worth.
